Olight's Brightest EDC

Olight never fails to impress and they did it yet again with their newest R40 Seeker rechargeable LED flashlight. This light is everything you could ask for in a light, compact, dangerously bright, and rechargeable, at a fraction of the cost of competitors. Ideal for police, search and rescue, security, or domestic use. If you're tired of constantly replacing batteries and you've been looking for the perfect rechargeable light for your needs then look no further, the R40 Seeker is sure to be the perfect fit for you.

Lighting Technology

Super Bright

The R40 is equipped with the latest and greatest CREE XM-L2 LED and produces a scorching 1100 lumens on High. While in Low mode, which emits 12 lumens, the R40 can run for up to five days straight. You can shine a beam as far 280 meters, which is a little over three football fields. The multi-function side-switch allows for On/Off activation, cycles through three brightness modes, strobe, and has an LED battery status indicator. The R40 features a lock-out function, so you don't have to worry about accidentally activating the light in your pocket or bag. If you're looking for an emergency light, you can stand it upright with an optional diffuser for softer area illumination.


Never be Left in the Dark

Easily rechargeable through the built in Micro USB port that is unobtrusive located on the tail cap, you'll be able to charge the R40 just about anywhere thanks to the included USB cable. There is no excuse for this light to be dead, as there are USB outlets everywhere you look, such as your computer, TV, or power cell.

One of the best lights I own. I have tried and thrown away or gave away a lot of lights over the years and this one is so close to perfect. The only thing lacking is I wish it came with more of a spot beam. You always get wash or flood from lights but if the beam were tightened up it would be perfect. Hope your listening O-light.
  • light weight powerful compact
  • No case or sheath needs to be more of a spot beam

This light is fantastic in every respect, except one. The 26650 battery that is included is NOT a standard rechargeable 26650.
I bought the light and an extra Fenix 26650 as a backup. The Olight battery and the Fenix battery have different electrode configurations. They are not interchangeable.
BJ should put a notice telling folks to buy a backup Olight battery, if desired.
I may have missed this in the reviews, so it's probably my fault for not knowing it ahead of time. I had to go and buy another light, so that I can use the Fenix 26650. By the way, the Fenix battery has 20% more capacity than the Olight battery.
  • Damn bright. Easy-to-use side switch. Simple-to-change modes. Simple to lock off for travel.
  • The rechargeable battery is not swappable with a standard Fenix 26650.

This is the most powerful flash light I have ever purchased. I bought it on sale and said why not buy one of the best. The push button control is very easy to use. The weight and size make it a perfect go to flash light. No reason to lug around a heavy D cell that is a foot or more in length any more unless you need to use it as a club.The self contained charging system is appreciated. I know that some flash light obsessed collectors out their will say that they have something better, but for the average guy this is simply an amazing torch! I would have given it 5 stars, but have not had enough time to try it out yet.

from Maynard, MA asked:
April 1, 2014
I notice that a replaceable rechargeable battery is available for this light and that it is lithium. I would assume then that the battery can be replaced. How long will a rechargeable lithium battery hold its charge if unused? Do all rechargeable batteries self discharge to some degree and how long would a full charge last if the flashlight were not used at all?
1 Answer
Yes, we do offer the replaceable Olight 26650 Battery that will fit in the R40 Seeker. A Lithium Ion battery should hold its charge for up to 3-4 years and yes, all rechargeable batteries do self-discharge over time.
